Something for nothing?

(Second section)

[SEPT. 15, 2000]  The Internet has enhanced and blessed the lives of many. The ability to communicate and obtain information in an instant without great expense has brought even long-term computer holdouts and computer deniers to purchase systems to gain access to the great riches offered on the net. And Internet users have found one other blessing of the Internet age: access to the treasure of their imaginations — free programs and software.



Part 2

For the love of’s only
a game

By Jeff Mayfield

[SEPT. 15, 2000]  Now that the fall sports season is upon us here in Lincoln and Logan County, I thought it might be good to review why sports programs even exist to begin with.  I should point out that I am not an expert in this field.  I am not a sports psychologist, although I’d love to play one on television.  I have no credentials.  I am not endorsed or sanctioned by the ISHA, the NCAA (thank God, talk about the kiss of death...) or the NBA.  I have never received expressed written consent for any accounts or depictions of any games by Major League Baseball.  However, I do think I have as much experience in this one little area of life and more than most of my 40-plus-year-old counterparts.  I have noticed a disturbing national trend when it comes to scholastic sports competition.  Before we begin covering this year’s plethora of games in our region, the LDN will try to remind athletes, coaches, parents and fans the reasons that we participate.  I hope that from this point on, Lincoln will be known as the town that bucked the trend...that in our area, kids learned the fundamentals, developed character and skills like teamwork, and also that they had a lot of fun along the way.
